How to Fight Cancer Mentally and Physically?
*Meditation-I meditated 4-5 days a week in 20 minute increments every morning. By practicing mediation it helped me remain sane, calm, positive and focused on my health. If you've never meditated and want to learn, I recommend this easy read by Russell Simmons. I learned so much more about meditation. It's super easy! The hard part is just starting.
*Gentle Yoga and Restorative Yoga-SO good for your body and mind. I promise it's easy to do and it's different from other yoga practices. Before I was diagnosed I had never heard of either practices. I was blessed to stumble upon this yoga studio near my house that just so happens to teach Gentle & Restorative Yoga. There is an instructor there named Amy who is also the owner of Yoga Arts. She also saved my life!
*Lots of TV binge watching. LOL.
*Eating a balanced meal. If you find yourself not hungry, you have to at least eat some type of PROTEIN at every meal. Boiled eggs are the best! Please refer to the protein list under "nutrition guide" if you need some suggestions.
*Keep a daily food log. By doing this, it will help you get to know your body and eating habits. Then when you visit you doctor, you'll have something concrete to share and reference which is extremely helpful. Lord knows we all can't remember it all!
*Take things one day at a time. Don't think about tomorrow, next month or what's to come a year from now. I promise practicing this last step will help your mind and body tremendously. Not to mention a few grey hairs. HAHA! Don't forget to believe in your doctors!
*All of these suggestions are from me and not paid advertisements. This was my recipe to getting cured of CANCER! 🙂
Get organized! Create a medical folder with large 3" rings, create or print out monthly pre-printed calendars (to keep track of medical appointments), include tabs for doctor's notes, lab results, medical bills, list of medications, prescription receipts, emergency phone numbers, nutrition guides, etc.
